Hawai‘i police ask Big Island to take Community Satisfaction Survey
The Hawai‘i Police Department is continuing to encourage Hawai‘i Island residents to take the department’s Community Satisfaction Survey, which is open until 4 p.m., Tuesday, Feb. 28.
The department conducts the survey every two years as part of its national accreditation process.
“At the most basic level, our job in the police department is to help the public feel safe,” said Chief Benjamin Moszkowicz. “The only way we can gauge our success and identify areas for improvement, is to solicit feedback from the community.”
“It is only through honest communication that we have any hope of continuing to improve the department and the community,” Moszkowicz continued.
The anonymous survey is available on the department’s website www.hawaiipolice.com and can be accessed directly at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/HPD2023.
The survey includes both multiple-choice questions and an opportunity to make individual comments that will aid in determining the police department’s strengths and weaknesses.
By comparing the results of this year’s survey with the results of past surveys, the department can gauge where it has improved and where it needs further improvement.
